Description
TECHNICAL FIELD

The present specification relates to a whitening composition containing a novel quercetin-based compound.

BACKGROUND ART

Recently, consumers' interest in whitening is increasing due to the increase of ultraviolet rays caused by environmental pollution or destruction of ozone layer. However, as a large amount of side effects and hypersensitivity reactions have been reported for chemical synthetic cosmetics made of artificial synthetic products, attempts have been actively made to obtain cosmetic raw materials from natural materials. Kojic acids, arbutin or derivatives thereof, which have been identified to date, have not been used as cosmetic raw materials because they have problems in safety or stability or are not very efficient in whitening when blended as cosmetic raw materials. For this reason, studies to find whitening active ingredients in natural products have continued, and as a result, substances that exhibit inhibition of the activity of tyrosinase have been found; however, the problems of stability and the appropriate effective concentration remain to be solved.

On the other hand, green tea is drunk in the tea form of leaf or as a fermented tea in order to feel deeper fragrance. Fermented green tea means that a green tea leaf is subject to oxidation treatment, and includes fermented tea oxidized by an oxidase present in the tea leaf, and post-fermented tea fermented by separate microorganisms, not enzymes presented in the tea leaf. Depending on the degree of fermentation, it can be classified into weakly fermented tea, semi-fermented tea, and fully fermented tea, etc. For example, fermented green tea is called with various names, such as green tea, oolong tea, black tea, puer tea, etc., depending on the type and extent of fermentation.

As compared to a leaf tea, the fermented tea not only has a difference in fragrance, but also has a great difference in the type and content of effective ingredients depending on the specific fermentation process and the type of microorganisms. Since various compounds can be produced and separated as described above, various efforts for isolating and identifying unknown new compounds using green tea have been continued.

EXAMPLES

Hereinafter, the constitution and effect of the present specification will be explained in more detail with reference to the examples, test examples and formulation examples. However, these examples are provided only for the purpose of the examples in order to help the understanding of the present specification, and the scope and range of the present specification are not limited thereto.

[Example 1] Preparation of Post-Fermented Tea Sample

Water was added to green tea that was made of green tea leaf (Camellia sinensis var. Yabukita) so as to adjust the moisture content to 40 wt. %. This green tea was inoculated with Bacillus subtillis 5×106 cfu/g, and fermented at 50° C. for 3 days and then fermented at 80° C. for 4 days.

The matured tea sample was pulverized for 15 seconds and strained through a stainless sieve of a mesh size 1 mm. Thereafter, 50 mg of the pulverized sample was put into a 1.5 ml Eppendorf tube, and 1 ml of deionized water was added and stirred in a water bath having a constant-temperature of 60° C. at a constant speed for 30 minutes, and then the centrifugation was performed at 25° C. and 13,000 rpm for 15 minutes. Only the portion that was not dissolved in the water was isolated from the extracts of the centrifuged fermented green tea.

[Example 2] Acquisition of Fraction and Isolation of Compound

150 g of the post-fermented tea sample was fractionated with acetone to remove catechin derivatives and caffeine, thereby obtaining a soluble in which other compounds were enriched. For 40 g of the acetone soluble, a fraction was primarily obtained with a solvent of a 5:1 (v/v) mixture of chloroform:methanol, using silica gel column chromatography.

8.9 g of 5:1 (v/v) fraction of chloroform:methanol in which caffeine was removed was fractionated using the high-capacity, high-performance countercurrent chromatography (HPCCC, Dynamic Extractions Ltd, UK). The solvent used herein was n-hexane-TBME (Methyl tert-butyl ether)-BuOH-MeCN-Water (0.25:3:1:1:5, v/v), and the flow velocity was 25 ml/min. The fraction was divided into total 10 subfractions under said conditions, and the ingredients contained in the respective fractions were again isolated using the small-capacity HPCCC (Dynamic Extractions Ltd, UK), HPLC (high-performance liquid chromatography), sephadex LH-20 column (GE Healthcare Bio-Sciences, Sweden), etc.

As the result, quercetin3-O-[3-O″-(E)-p-coumaroyl][β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→3)-O-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside] and quercetin3-O-[3-O″-(E)-p-coumaroyl][α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside], which are the compounds that have not been known before, could be isolated from the fraction, and the structures of the respective compounds were defined by identifying the structures using 1H, 13C-NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy), UV (ultraviolet spectroscopy), and ESI-MS (Electro Spray Ionization Mass spectroscopy). In the case of 1H and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), methanol-d3 was used as the solvent, and Bruker Advance DPX-500 (BRUKER®, USA) was used as the device. The MS spectrums of the respective compounds were analyzed using 6200 Series Accurate-Mass Time-of-Flight (TOF) LC/MS (Agilent, US).

As the analysis result, it was found that the respective compounds were quercetin3-O-[3-O″-(E)-p-coumaroyl][β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→3)-O-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside] having a molecular weight of C42H46O23 of 918.2430 (‘New Material 31’), and quercetin3-O-[3-O″-(E)-p-coumaroyl][α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→6)-O-α-D-glucopyranoside]having a molecular weight of C36H36O18 of 756.1902 (‘New Material 32’), which are the compounds that have not been known before.

Culturing was made under the condition of 37° C., 5% CO2 of a DMEM medium containing 10% placenta serum, 100 nM 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate, and 1 nM Cholera Toxin. The test materials were treated in the manner where the cultured Mel-Ab cell was isolated with 0.25% trypsin-EDTA, and inoculated again with the same number (1×105 cells/well) in the 24-well plate, and then the medium was replaced with a medium containing the test materials for two days from the second day. As the test materials, 5 ppm, 10 ppm, 25 ppm and 50 ppm of New Materials 31 and 32, 25 ppm, 50 ppm and 100 ppm of Kojic acids and DMSO (control) were used. After 5 days, the test materials were treated with 1N-NaOH to dissolve melanin contained in the cell, and the amount of melanin was measured by measuring absorbance at 400 nm. The concentration (IC50) of the material necessary for reducing melanogenesis of melanocyte by half was calculated, and the results are shown in following Table 4.

Specifically, 15 healthy adult examinees were randomly selected, and test compositions in which the compounds were respectively comprised in an amount of 0.5 wt. %, 1 wt. %, and 3 wt. % (the compositions for skin, comprising an emulsifying agent, a stabilizer, purified water, etc. in addition to the compounds) were dropped in the amount of 20 μl per chamber (IQ chamber, Epitest Ltd, Finland), and patched on the right site of the upper back of the examinees, and then, after 24 hours, the patch was replaced with a new patch. A total of 9 patches were conducted, three times a week for total 3 weeks, in such manner, the skin reactions before and after patch were examined every time, and the skin reactions until 48 hours after removing the final patch were observed, and the average reactivity was observed.

The result is shown in the following Table 5.

When the average reactivity is less than 3, it is considered as a stable composition.

The skin reaction was determined according to the criteria of International Contact Dermatitis Research Group (ICDRG). In the above table, “New Material 31” refers to quercetin3-O-[3-O″-(E)-p-coumaroyl][β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→3)-O-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside], and “New Material 32” refers to quercetin3-O-[3-O″-(E)-p-coumaroyl][α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside]. In other words, the both materials observed the (−) reactivity (no examinees who exhibited ±, +, ++, or +++ reactivity) within the above range of contents, and from this, it was found that said materials give no skin accumulated stimulus and thus can be stably used for skin.
